A Postdoctoral Fellow position in ecosystem modeling, regional and 
global ecology is available in the Department of Ecology, Evolution, and 
Organismal Biology at Iowa State University.

This position provides great opportunities to apply macrosystems 
approach and process-based terrestrial biosphere modeling to quantify 
and predict ecosystem patterns and processes (e.g., land-atmosphere 
exchange of greenhouse gases, land-to-ocean mass flow, biogeochemical 
and hydrological cycling) in response to human and natural disturbances 
at multiple spatial and temporal scales.


  * A Ph.D. degree from an accredited institution in Ecosystem Ecology,
    Biogeochemistry, Ecohydrology, Atmospheric Science, Agriculture,
    Forestry, or related fields with knowledge of terrestrial ecosystem
    modeling is required.
  * Preference will be given to candidates with experience and
    background on biogeochemistry/ecosystem modeling, remote sensing and
    GIS, geospatial analysis, and computer programming (prefer C or C++).
  * Excellent written and interpersonal communication skills, record of
    research publications in refereed journals of high quality, and a
    demonstrated ability to function well within multidisciplinary teams
    are required.
  * The candidate selected for this position must be able to meet
    eligibility requirements to work in the United States by the date
    appointment is scheduled to begin and must be able to communicate in



  * The successful candidate will participate in an interdisciplinary
    research team to investigate the natural and anthropogenic impacts
    on ecosystem structure and functions by using integrated and
    computational approaches.
  * The individual is expected to independently develop and implement
    the spatially-explicit process-based land ecosystem model for
    examining the impacts of climate change, land use and management
    practices on terrestrial ecosystems at regional and global scales.
  * The specific duties include large-scale data development, model
    improvement, simulation, model evaluation, uncertainty analysis,
    manuscript preparation etc. This individual will be encouraged to
    pursue new research direction (e.g., participate in development of
    research proposals), and will help manage the lab and interact with
    graduate and undergraduate students.

Offer: Salary commensurate with training and research experience, 
mentoring by and collaboration with senior research personnel from a 
multidisciplinary team, office space and computer facilities, and 
coverage of research and related travel expenses.

Application Procedures

  Applications should include a cover letter explaining your research 
interests and accomplishments, and your qualifications for the position; 
a curriculum vita; and names and contact information (including email 
addresses) for three professional references.
